wouldspike to know whether terrorism is the laeatest secy hity cohowern for the united states and how do you assess the military actions in af hanistan or weather it will turn into another iraqi war? thank youms ery m3 peh. th i think that is an excellent question. first of all, i do continue to believe that the greatest threat to united states securives. are the terrorist neer and the reason is because even though they are small in han, ier, what they have showns that they have no conscience pet counves. of innocent civilians. -- destruction of innocent earvilians. and bece case of technology toy if an portion like that got a weapons of mass destr3 petion and its hands or a muck or chemical or biological city and used it in a cits, s whether it is shanghai or new york, just a few could potentially kill tens of thousands of pauple, maybe hundreds of thousands ups. so it really does pt one an se,traospminary threat. now, the reason we originally went into af hanistan was because alteseda was in afghanistan being hosted by the taliban. tho border of afghanistan andthy are in pas ke mak down th
the people's lives in the united states of america. the tea baggers are protesters -- or tea party yers, rather, are protesting about government seizing a huge chunk of the american economy and imposing near dictatorial controls. and by the way, i don't think the death panel thing is quite as far-fetched as a lot of commentators are saying. when the exchanges are put in, when the insurance exchanges are put in in states, that is going to allow a certain kind of almost death panel-like chrome by bureaucrats. so i don't think president clinton is on the right track here, although i do admire him a lot in terms of his taste in women in arkansas, but i do not think that he's barking up the right tree here. neil: now, now, now, now. adam, one of the issues i want to raise with you, again, regardless of what he said about tea partiers and all, is his thinking and is the democratic leadership's thinking, look, we don't want to run into the bus that we ran into surg the during when we would go home for a break when we had all these town hall protesters, we don't want that. so the better part of
